A gift of homemade mustard is sure to be appreciated by the sandwich lovers in your life. Make sure to also trumpet how great this mustard is in salad dressings. The mustard packs a little bit of a sinus-clearing kick, so if you need to scale down the heat for recipients, use more yellow mustard seeds at the expense of the black ones.
1 cup (250 mL) orange juice
1/3 cup (80 mL) cider vinegar
1/2 cup (125 mL) yellow mustard seeds
1/4 cup (60 mL) black mustard seeds
1/3 cup (80 mL) yellow mustard powder
1 tsp (5 mL) ground allspice
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1/2 tsp (2 mL) black pepper
Combine ingredients in glass jar or container, secure lid, and let sit at room temperature for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours.
Place mixture in food processor or high-powered blender container and blend until you have a thick, slightly coarse paste. You can add a little extra orange juice if needed to help with the blending.
Makes about 2 cups (500 mL), enough for 4 gifts.
